Butterfly Kisses


This week's Papertake Challenge has a really wonderful sketch by my fellow DT member, Katharina. I love square cards and lots of layers so this one was a lot of fun to create!

I received a package of the new Afternoon Tea designer papers by Stampin' Up, so I had to pull them out right away. The colours just look so wonderful together. The adorable Tilda image is actually one of many that my friend Tara sent to me. I don't have this stamp, but oh how I wish that I did!! She looks as though she's standing out in the middle of a field with the wind gently blowing and these lovely little butterflies flitting all around her.

Anyway, she is stamped on Wausau bright white cardstock using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink (I know that because Tara told me so) and I used my Copic markers to colour her in. I think I might be getting a little better at shading with the Copics. I'm much better at just the solid colours but I've been stepping out lately and trying to add different shades and I think this image turned out pretty well. I used a couple of different browns in her hair, peachy oranges on her dress and greens on her boots. I layered her on Soft Sky and a section of her on Chocolate Chip. The card base is a 6x6 square of textured Groovy Guava cardstock and then layered with Chocolate Chip, a piece of the Afternoon Tea dp and some Soft Sky designer series paper. The bottom strip is Wild Wasabi that I ran through my Cuttlebug using the D'vine Swirls embossing folder. The sentiment panel is a piece of AT dp punched out with my scalloped circle punch and I used the Butterfly Kisses stamp from High Hopes. I added some Prima flowers with Basic Grey brads, some stitched grosgrain ribbon and a butterfly charm. I pop dotted the focal image and of course.....I added Stardust Stickles to her wings and the little butterflies!!

I'm teaching a card class at the library on Tuesday night, so I will be spending the day today preparing for that. I have to design 4 cards and prepare enough for 10 people to do each card. Guess I'd better get to it!!

Have a great day........and don't forget....you still have time to enter my stamp giveaway!!!

oh another cutie kimmie! Sounds like you had a big task today- ack! Thanks for posting on my site today- Jake wants to check it every few hours and I forgot it was the w/e and it is always slow for me. I really love these particular primas- what type are they? I thought maybe you had made these yourself with CB or sizzix.

This is such a sweet Tilda. I love the added charm that your butterfly charm adds. (How's that for confusing English!!)

This is so... cute! Your shading looks great! There's been quite a learning curve with Copics for me but I feel that I am getting better (on most days)! My DD (age 4) has just learned about "butterfly kisses" and we are gettin' all kinds of them!
